I'm still blogging in 'the dark'. I hope my blog looks okay, because I can not see any graphics...only text. Every now and then the computer will let me see a picture, but not too often. You can image my frustration!
The one good thing about not having a computer is that it forces me to spend more time in my Studio. I've been cleaning and organizing. It's amazing how much stuff I've accumulated over the years. I really do need to stop purchasing things and use what I have.
I was able to participate in Sparkle's Challenge this week. We were to create any type of Christmas card we wanted. The stamp that I used is by Hero Arts and it's 21 years old, I've probably used it twice. I decided to pair it with the Aspen papers from CTMH-love this pack-and some textured Twilight card stock. The felt snowflake embellies are also Hero Arts and the clear jewels are Kaisercraft. My focal image is stamped on a 'Hug' from Stampin' Up! These are pre-cut pieces of card stock and they are so much fun to use! They are in the Occasions Mini-Catalog right now. After I stamped my image, I pressed it onto a Versamark ink pad and then sprinkled on some Iridescent Ice ep, also from SU! It imparts a wonderful sparkle, that perfectly compliments the cozy cottages.
I attempted a close up, so you could see the sparkle from the embossing powder. So easy to do and such a nice effect.
I'm glad you stopped by today. And thank you so much for bearing with me thru my computer woes...please let me know if my pics are goofy, or if my blog looks funny. I attempted to take off the Valentine's Day look, I hope I was successful. I can only see my blog banner! Ahhh! I don't know how much longer I'm going to be able to tolerate this.
Have a great day!
